No revision needed yet, still healing
Post Op Concerns With Healing
Thank you for your question but without any photos or an exam it isn't possible to comment meaningfully. I recommend that you continue to follow up closely with your Plastic Surgeon and ask their guidance as they know your situation the best.

Thanks for your question on your breast issues. Consider speaking directly with your plastic surgeon. It takes at least 3 months to see the final result of a breast augmentation. lf you decide to seek a second opinion think about setting up an in-person consult with a plastic surgeon who has at least one of these credentials:
*Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery - the gold star symbol
*A member of the ASPS (American Society of Plastic Surgeons) - the circle symbol
*A member of the ASAPS (American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons) - the Queen Nefertiti symbol with a Triangle

4 weeks post op, some advices:
Its too early to talk about final results.
In my practice for cases like your In my practice, after performing a BA I recommend to my patients to limit the movement of the arms for two weeks. After that, you can move your arms taking care and always with common sense.
In this regard, it's not advisable to carry heavy weights to prevent the implant out of position, and allow the formation of the physiological capsule around the implant, also to avoid pain and breast swelling.

It is very difficult to answer your question without front and side view pictures.
One month after surgery is still quite early in the healing process. It takes 3-4 months for the implants to settle down
. Your surgeon is absolutely right in his instruction to do the implants displacement massage. That will help significantly with the implants settling down.
If after 3-4 month things do not improve and you are still saggy with the implant riding high, you might need revision surgery, which will depends on the findings.
All the best,

Make sure as well to follow your surgeon's advice regarding massage. Take breaks if you notice being nauseous or dizzy. This too should decrease with time.
Wishing you all the best,
